Back at Tyler's hideout, Ams looks at the photograph of Emanda and Jack as kids. She rips it right down the middle. Tyler emerges dressed in a white-up-top and black-on-bottom tux. He asks how he looks. "Overmedicated," Amily deadpans before asking why Tyler's going through so much trouble to destroy Ems. Tyler asks if Amily knows anything about Frank. He thinks Emanda framed him for Frank's murder. His version of revenge involves framing Emanda for killing Daniel. Eye for an eye, he says. Tyler gives Ams a dress on a hanger since she's earned herself a front-row seat to the proceedings, and instructs her to put it on. Tyler: "Daniel's about to find out just how bad his taste in women really is." Couldn't he just sign up for Match.com?
Fire & Ice time at Grayson Manor. All the usual players are walking around the party in their expected capacities. Ashley frets over party things, Nolan creeps around and Emanda remains statuesque while everyone else is schmoozing. Victoria is in the study, scribbling on a piece of paper. Conrad comes in and asks if she's making last-minute alterations to her speech. Actually, she's signing her agreement to Conrad's divorce terms. Victoria thinks it's time they put an end to all of this. Conrad comments on the poetic timing of this and walks out. With him gone, Victoria pulls out a business card for a field director at the SEC. She watches an oblivious Conrad out in the courtyard through the window.
Upstairs at Casa Emily, Emanda slips a gun into a concealed holster on her thigh and lowers her skirt. Dan shows up and hints at a surprise tonight.
